What’s an “academic poem?”

Good question! I’ve never read a sensible definition for it.  If I were to make up one, I’d say it is akin to writing non-prose with a check-list.  Although I eschew labels, I believe this poem falls comfortably perhaps into being called observational-minimalism, although to me it is just something that burped after a good single-malt scotch. :emoticon:
